    SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — Two years after coming out as gay and praising the Mormon church for offering support, Tyler Glenn of Neon Trees is denouncing his faith in his latest music video. The lead singer of the Provo-based band released the video Friday for a single titled "Trash," in which he appears to be trashing the church. Glenn told Rolling Stone magazine that his belief in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints changed about six months ago. In November, the church announced that children of same-sex couples could not be baptized until they are 18. One of few publicly out Mormons, Glenn told The Associated Press in 2014 that he was looking forward to speaking about gay acceptance in his religious culture. A representative of the church declined to comment.
